In Scher v. Burke (2015) 240 Cal.App.4th 381, the Court of Appeal for the Second Appellate District held, in the published portion of the decision: (1) that Civil Code section 1009 bars all use of non-coastal private real property, not simply recreational use of such property, from ever ripening into an implied dedication to the public after the March 4, 1972 effective date of that statute; and (2) that evidence about the use of a road on private property after that date cannot support a finding that the road was impliedly dedicated to public use prior to that date.
